Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
Chelsea have lined up Arsenal Oxlade Chamberlain as a replacement for Eden Hazard should the Belgian leave Stamford bridge next summer, according to the Express.
The Blues winger is being linked with a move out of Stamford bridge at the end of the current campaign with Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain reportedly keen on the winger.
The Express now claims the West London club are already preparing for life without the Belgian and has lined up a bid for Arsenal’s Chamberlain next summer.
The Blues are currently short of homegrown players and are looking for every means to sign some of the best talents from the country and Chamberlain has caught the attention of top braces at Stamford bridge.
Chelsea were linked with the Gunner’s winger last summer and proposed a swap deal involving Chamberlain and Cech which the Gunners swiftly rejected it, as per the Mirror.
With Hazard reportedly telling his friends he is prepared to leave Stamford bridge next summer, the Blues are preparing a straight cash bid for the England international.
Chamberlain has payed 95 league games for Arsenal since joining the North London club in 2011 scoring six goals
